In discussions with several hockey parents over the last 24 hours, the feedback is positive with the decision. Three of us have kids in Peewee. Two with initiation kids.

The one person I talked to that didn't like it played AAA and that small kids going to Bantam would be at severe risk. That I couldn't disagree with.
I find it hard to reconcile that hitting is too dangerous for Pee wee, but its ok for Bantam. That makes very little sense to me. At the very least all minors should be protected, meaning no hitting for any minor hockey level, including major junior.
